Georgia State University College of Law Clinical Teaching Position

Georgia State University’s College of Law seeks highly qualified applicants for a full- time Clinical Professor responsible for teaching and assisting in the operation and administration of its Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic. This position would be a non-tenure track appointment, with faculty status, a renewable contract, and job security commensurate with tenured faculty. Clinical faculty have voting rights and serve on faculty committees at the College of Law. The appointment could begin at the commencement of the 2015-2016 academic year or as early as January.

In addition to assisting in the operation of the clinic, the Clinical Professor will supervise students in all aspects of Tax Clinic client representation; have responsibility for case selection and client communication; and develop and teach related coursework. Applicants should have a strong academic background, practical tax and lawyering experience, and a proven record of, or demonstrated potential for, student supervision, successful teaching, professional engagement, and service to the community. Experience working in a law school tax clinic, while not a prerequisite for the position, is highly desirable.

 

Part of a comprehensive research university, the College of Law is a dynamic urban- centered law school located in the heart of Atlanta with approximately 650 full- and part- time law students. The Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic provides legal controversy resolution services to low-income individuals who have disputes with the Internal Revenue Service. The Clinic has been operating year-round as a principal component of the College of Law’s experiential learning program. It has a case load of over 300, and it has represented over 4000 low-income individuals since its founding approximately 22 years ago. For more information about the Clinic, please visit the Clinic’s website: http://taxclinic.law.gsu.edu/

 

Applications are encouraged from candidates who would diversify the faculty. Georgia State University, a unit of the University System of Georgia, is an equal opportunity educational institution and an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. As required by Georgia State University, an appointment is contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background investigation.

 

Deadline for applications is November 30, 2014. Applications should be submitted to:

Director, Philip C. Cook Low income Taxpayer Clinic College of Law,
